As makeup artists; we get asked ALLLLL the time what our very favorite product is. That is like asking “what is your favorite dessert?” I mean, how do you pick just one?! In our “What’s in our makeup bag” blog series we will highlight some of our favorite products. They will range from products you can pick up from your local drugstore (yes, there are some great finds at reasonable prices) to higher end luxury products that we feel are worth the splurge! After all, every woman deserves a killer lipstick!
What’s in Johanna’s makeup bag?!?
When thinking about make up on the “BIG DAY” I know one concern of almost every bride is touching up their lips, or most importantly something that wont come off when they kiss their groom. I mean afterall; you have other things to worry about…eating, dancing and cutting the cake…mmmm cake!!!
When I’m on-location working all day or when I know that I’m going to have a long busy night I have two favorite lippies to have on hand!
The first is a total splurge that I had to have no question… and this beauty has been very popular with our brides lately. Chanel Rouge Double Insensite Ultra Wear Lip Color @ $35! This long lasting color is fantastic!! Your lips will not dry out or crack and the color is build-able…meaning light for the timid and intense for the more daring! I have it in “sensual rose'” thought it was perfect for spring!
The next must-have is perfect if your on a budget or if you’re like me…. OBSESSED with all things lips and therefore feel the need to buy 12 to have them in every color….then the Covergirl OutLast All Day Lip Color is definitely for you! Even though it is a bargain at about $9; it literally comes in every shade and lasts ALL DAY. The moisture stick helps lips stay moist and I don’t ever have to worry about touching it up!
So kiss on, drink on, and dance on and never have to worry about touching up!
